Virtual Photo Workshop: Cherry Blossom Edition

Washington, D.C.’s famous cherry trees are nearing full bloom. Last spring, Nat Geo Travel took you there in real time with Dan Westergren, the head of photography for Traveler magazine, leading the way.

Dan went down to one of the District’s most photogenic spots—the Tidal Basin—to capture this world-class capital city in all its springtime glory and offer practical tips about how to leverage light and composition when you’re trying to get the perfect shot of these iconic—and fleeting—blossoms.
